For Unit 3, Part a - Extended reading controlled assessment - The Crucible.
Two documents informing pupils of the assessment criteria for the topic, as well as some tasks in order to test their knowledge.
I have split the Citizenship assessment criteria into strands and made the language more child friendly. These can be used as a display and /or to inform the students of what they need to do to progress to the next level.
An outstanding bridging unit for Year 9 pupils based on the material released from AQA on 'Biomimicry'. The unit has been used for a six week half term for Year 9 pupils to introduce them to concepts and skills that appear at GCSE and to bridge the gap. The unit includes an overview, lesson plans and PowerPoints for 24 lessons. The worksheets and homeworks can be obtained from the AQA website.
I have taken the common 6 mark questions seen in the GCSE Core examinations and adapted them into a 6 mark AFL style question - this can be done as a starter/plenary in lessons to ensure pupils look at question command words, key words and exam technique. You can add or remove the key words depending on the group and use the answers for self and peer assessment.<br />
These have proved invaluable for the current exams and have had positive feedback from pupils<br />
These can be adapted to fit with any syllabus and the new GCSE specifications
